2017 Langhe Nebbiolo, Giuseppe Mascarello
On location in Sälen, the second bottle opened (the first a bottle of bubbly (that goes without a saying!) but a note on that one tomorrow) is this handsome Langhe Nebbiolo, with a silky nose with roses en masse, rosehips, a touch of tobacco and that scent of a freshly cleaned bathroom. Very, very good.
The taste is pure and fine with notes of ripe red currants, hard cherry candy, candle grease, chrushes rocks and tobacco. A long, velvety finish. A perfect drink today but this will surely go on 6+ years at this level.
